The annual match for the Parklands Past Captains was held on Sunday 21st August 2016. This traditional event consists of a team match-play competition where it is intended that the men’s and ladies past captains in a particular year play against each other. The golf is followed by a 3 course dinner in the Clubhouse. The ladies won the golf match again!! The golf was graced with good weather and dinner by lovely food and superb company. Thanks go to all involved.
The final event of the 2016 Inter league was at Stocksfield Golf Club where the team finished 5th with Dicky Rutherford top scoring for Parklands with a very creditable 35 points.
The team finished the season in 4th place, with Ian Mcphillips crowned as the top scoring player and thus qualifying for the Inter Individual Championship event at Rockcliffe Hall in October.
A total of 17 players represented Parklands in the Inter League this season and I would like to thank them all for their efforts throughout the season, and wish Ian good luck at Finals day.

The Lady Chairman, Candy Brown, welcomed the members and her guests to a very sunny Parklands on Saturday, 6th August. The event was well attended and the sunshine ensured that there were no excuses for the scores, which has resulted in several ladies having their handicaps cut. A halfway house brought drinks and snacks followed by afternoon tea at the 19th with sandwiches and cake to finish. This photo shows the winner of the Chairman’s Trophy, Vicky Corner, collecting her trophy and prize voucher. Candy sends her sincere thanks to all the members and friends who brought her cards and presents for her first Chairman’s Day.

The Parklands Rabbits team maintained their 100% home record by winning the Rabbits event on Sunday. Following some inspirations selections from Captain Tommy Watson, the team romped home by a margin of 16 points ahead of Roseberry Grange in 2nd place and 25 points ahead of Crook in 3rd place. All of the Parklands players scored well, with Eamon Farrar leading the way with 42 points, while Barry Hirst, Peter Clarke and debutant Lee Findlay, all scoring 41 points. Eamon extends his lead as top Parklands player, but after this result there are a number of players pushing him for the honour of representing Parklands at the end of season NERGA Finals day hosted at Rockcliffe Hall. A big thanks to all involved in running another successful event at Parklands.
